Earlier this week, Democrats celebrated the one year anniversary of President Biden doing what Trump and his Republican Congress promised for years but failed to accomplish – signing a Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that is making once-in-a-generation investments in our nation’s roads, bridges, railroads, ports, airports, water systems, and high-speed internet access. While Trump and his Republican Congress talked about an infrastructure week that never materialized, President Biden and Democrats are delivering an infrastructure decade.
